Chilli Cheese Toast

Everyone loves cheese and those who love spice/chillies this dish is a treat! Chilli cheese toast is exactly the thing one would like to eat if it is raining outside. Chilli cheese toast is made in various ways. Of course it can be made in many ways, all it needs is 3 ingredients, chilli, cheese and bread.
So use any variety of these 3 ingredients and make your own cheese chilli toast. Cheese and bread can be anything really, so long as cheese is of melting variety like cheddar, processed etc. Bread is a no-brainer, choose any kind.

So what is your choice of chilli? I like the not so spicy, fat variety green chilli for my chilli cheese toast. Choose any you like, may be go for the bird eye chilli variety if you are feeling particularly brave. Whatever is your cup of tea or your choice of the hottest chilli. (Bhut jolokia a.k.a ghost pepper may be šŸ™‚ , or maybe not)
So now that we have established chilli cheese toast ingredients, I will share my version below. I have many versions for this easy peasy snack. I can gorge on these cheesy bites any time.
